Rated 5 out of 5 by Big Squatter Quality Half Rack
Very good quality rack for less than $400. Can't get a better price. Only problem I've faced is the rubber padding of the hooks coming off, but that's because I keep it outside under the hot Florida sun. Other than that, no problems and very sturdy rack. Unless you're squatting 550+, theres no need to question the capability of this rack. I was surprised to see how easily it handled big weights.

I got this half rack a few months ago. I used to own a heavy duty, full power rack (1000 lb capacity), but had to get rid of it when I moved into an apartment. I am not sorry. This half rack gives me a lot of room and orientation possibilities. It is easy to move around, not like the 250 lb beast I had before. Working out is much more open and versatile, and the long spotter arms are more than adequate for safe lifting (though some cage dwellers do worry about falling backward--and I guess anything can happen--but seems to me you would fall forward). The design also allows you to stand in pretty far, giving you a lot of spotter room. The pullup bars can be re-oriented in several arrangements, depending on your gripping preference, and you can use the fat bar by reversing your position (facing out). It is very stable--doesn't rock one bit (and I weigh 250). The painting, hardware, hole patterns, and plate holders are all excellent. For most people who are not planning to squat 600 or more pounds, I highly recommend it. Great buy (just compare to the very heavy duty half racks on the market).

We needed a solid piece of equipment that would allow us to do basic weight lifting and most of the movements in a Crossfit WOD. The other racks we were looking at cost two to three times as much as this one, and didn't include some of the nice extra features (such as the pull up bar and the integrated weight stand).
This rack may not be as sturdy or well built as some the more expensive ones, but for our purposes (and I have to image for most average home users) it is plenty sturdy. If you are a true power lifter, then maybe you should look elsewhere, but for us, this has been perfect, and the money we saved allowed us to buy other equipment to complete our home gym.
The only knock I have on it is that mine was a bit wobbly front to back. This seems due to a rubber pad that is on the bottom of the (and in the middle) of the two bars that sit on the floor. They seem designed to screw into the floor at each end, which would have solved this problem. But we are not able to do that, so I had to shim the rack to stabilize it.

No real gripes about this rack. The price was phenomenal and the quality is of a unit double the price. There were none available thru the website but the store had a few models left for sale. No floor models though so you may have to ask for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by The Boys We bought this rack to complete our set to with the new bench and 300 pound of weights . We now need floor pads to help when we dead lift.
Yes our rack we got for Christmas is set up with our bench. We followed the instruction and put it together. My dad was proud of us because we did it on our own. Simple and happy happy

Amazing piece of equipment. Put it together myself in about 40 minutes. After looking on the internet for close to 6 months for a half rack I bought this rack because I needed one to increase my fitness level. I couldn't be happier. It was cheap and fits nicely in my small garage gym. One complaint is that I would like one more set of weight arms for more weight storage. I would recommend this rack to anyone. Cheers!
